Its showtime this Christmas for the Olivier Award-winning hit show
La Soirée is a theatrical phenomenon that’s won devotees around the world. Now you can discover the decadent and downright dangerous show that Entertainment Weekly calls “a mesmerising hybrid of sideshow, vaudeville and burlesque” and Flavorpill says is, "definitely not for kids, but, oh so much fun for adults.” The theatrical phenomenon is back for another awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping and downright unmissable run at La Soirée's Spiegeltent at Southbank Centre, especially for the festive season. An inspirational night of live entertainment: La Soirée's heady cocktail of cabaret, new burlesque, circus sideshow and contemporary variety is more potent than ever. Returning to London with their hottest line-up yet, La Soirée showcases the crème de la crème of the cabaret world as it introduces the newest members of its dysfunctional family alongside very dear old friends. Pick from either ringside seats – where you can get up close and personal with the action (although be aware, these seats are not for the faint-hearted, and might make for a night you'll never forget) – or take a pew in the boardwalk seats, ideal for relaxing while taking in the incredible auditorium, and, of course, the show. So step in from the cold, leave your troubles at the door and prepare for a night of thrills, shocks, laughter and disbelief as La Soirée banishes the winter blues and leaves you wanting to see it all over again. ★★★★★ – The Stage ★★★★☆ – The Guardian ★★★★☆ – Time Out ★★★★☆ – The Telegraph ★★★★☆ – Evening Standard Over 15a only.
